La Ferme Musicale is a new concept for a vertical farm in Bordeaux that also includes an educational center and a music venue. Designed by SOA Architectes and holdUP for Darwin Ecosysteme, the farm is designed to be built upon the ruins of Niel Barracks.
La Ferme Musicale  = also known as Ferme Darwin – is a concept for a vertical farm and cultural center in Bordeaux. Darwin Ecosysteme  has been working on a larger project to build a sustainable community in Bordeaux, and the vertical farm is one aspect of it. The facility addresses health, food, and ethical and social concerns and provides space for people to gather together to celebrate food and life. Passersby and members of the community can learn more about sustainable food production, and the venue is suited for parties, events and concerts.
La Ferme Musicale  is designed to transform the remains of a warehouse into an educational gallery, a stage, community rooms and growing facilities. Above the ground floor, a series of lightweight steel structures house the growing facilities. This greenhouse is set on top of a stone ruin, which contains the utilities and equipment necessary for production. La Ferme Musicale will take advantage of auto-regulated water-efficient devices, solar energy, and organic farming methods to produce local food. The facility will also employ local residents and give back to the community in more ways than one.
